Wild horses found dead in southeastern Kentucky

HARLAN, Ky. (AP) - Dozens of wild horses have been shot to death in southeastern Kentucky.

Harlan County Humane Society CEO Marcella Chadwick says the organization is offering a $500 reward for information leading to conviction in the deaths of the 28 horses.

Chadwick told the Harlan Daily Enterprise she was contacted Friday by people who live in the Bledsoe area about 12 miles northwest of Harlan. She said mares and foals were shot and left to die.

The Humane Society stepped in a couple of years ago when a coal company wanted to move the horses. Chadwick said then the company dropped the effort and the horses were thriving.

Anyone with information should contact the Humane Society at (606) 573-0016 or any law enforcement agency.
